Sherry Levin Wallach, NYSBA Secretary

“As co-creator of the Trial Academy in 2009 and NYSBA Secretary, I am honored to bring to you a revitalized program for 2021. Starting on June 23, we are offering a 13-part webinar series running through to December 2020, detailing trial techniques you won’t find anywhere else. From Handling a Virtual Hearing to Expert Testimony, we’ve created trial programs to cover topics during our current virtual climate, as well as planning ahead for a return to the new normal. The series will culminate in a live Trial Academy program at Syracuse Law School in March, 2021 where distinguished judges, seasoned trial attorneys and experts will host a mock trial, as well as teach small group sessions where you’ll learn critical trial skills. You’ll attend daily lectures and benefit from one-on-one critiques of your performance. This is a must-attend event and I look forward to seeing you there.”

  • Work with your small group Team Leader to learn critical trial skills
  • Attend daily lectures given by distinguished trial attorneys and judges
